Research at Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust covers a wide range of clinical specialties, working with some of the country’s leading professionals in paediatric conditions. The Sheffield Children’s Clinical Research Facility (CCRF) opened in 2008 and was the first paediatric clinical research facility in the UK. Currently we have over 300 research projects open in the Trust and these range from highly complex clinical trials of investigative medicinal products to small pilot studies. Last year over 1,700 patients and volunteers participated in research at our Trust, including nearly 1000 participants taking part in COVID-19 Urgent Public Health Research studies. The research conducted at the Trust is a mix of non-commercial and commercial funded research, which is supported by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), charity funders and industry partners. We are keen to grow our own researchers and support those who are at the early stages of their clinical research careers.
Research at Sheffield Hallam in the area of child health encompasses a range of disciplines and approaches. We provide a multi-disciplinary research environment with expertise spanning engineering; materials science; biomolecular sciences and tissue engineering; design and co-design methodologies; the use and development of digital media and gaming applications for clinical applications; qualitative and quantitative approaches to understanding the patient experience; physical activity, exercise science and lifestyle interventions; and health and social care.
